Curious about a service

As always, I\’m looking for new ways to make money with JR Computer Associates. One such way hit me today as being quite a good idea for blogs to make money with and I\’m curious what the world thinks about it.

Many people who own blogs, take lots and lots of pictures. Some are cool enough to have photo gallerys where you can see the photos in some websafe format. Very rarely do people give access to raw images (for bandwidth reasons) and therefore, very few people would be able to use them to get decent prints if they wanted one.

So my question is… Would there be a market for blog photo albums where you can order prints from them at say… 15 cents a print (plus shipping). It\’s just an idea… Let me know what you think…

    i wouldn't mind it. i take a good picture every once and awhile. just as long as the blog gallery is on my blog and not at some third party site…

    You could never pull it off at 15 cents a print, but yeah, I like the idea.

    Why not… if snapfish charges 10 cents, and i just use them to route it…

    I think it wouldn't be half bad, I wouldn't mind paying for a good image

    I don't know if it would work. When you say order prints do you mean ability to download the raw image? Because it is not finacially sound to ship a single photo.

    i think its a good idea but you would have to find people to have the prints and a good market to buy the prints. overall i think it would be hard to get a decent amount of people buying the prints and if snapfish charges 10 cents a print then i would imagine people go there over you just because of the fact its cheaper… unless you threw in something thats way better than what they have.

    Well, first off now snapfish charges 12 cents a print, and it's more of a personal image service for getting your own images, not really a place where people can sell their photos of artistic thought and creativity, however justin could just route everything to them and because they would be good images and not personal ones, people (I'm assuming) would buy them

    i was surfing deviant art and i found they do around the same thing you wanted to do. But for a way higher price. They charge $1.95 for a 4x6in print on glossy paper.

    I would pay 10 cents with snapfish… I would bulk order… But either way… It's not important anymore… My focus has been reassigned and this has been put under the label "not so bad idea that won't make money and takes to much work" category.

    there is rather direct competition from flickr, though. you could sell it as a service for those who didn't want flickr type sites managing their galleries.
